This activity begins with a handout which describes a simple method for setting up and solving metric and customary (standard) unit conversions for capacity,distance, and weight problems. It is used when you want to convert one unit of measurement to another; for example, if you want to convert inches to yards, or centimeters to inches, or gallons to cups, etc. Takes the guesswork and confusion out of these problems, and it's so simple!
Conversion Charts - There are three charts providing an easy-to-use reference for converting weight, distance, and capacity measurements. Also included is an alphabetized list of metric and customary unit abbreviations.
Two separate 14 problem practice sheets – The first for customary unit conversions, and a second sheet providing practice converting from metric to customary units and vice versa. Answer keys are included for both practice sheets.
